Mashariki Artist Management has been created to meet the need for professional artist & talent support services. The creative sector in Kenya is yearning to reach its full potential & it’s my believe that providing management & consulting services to talented individuals will foster the development of this industry. While for a long time, I was just interested in the music industry, I have become increasingly aware of how transferable & customizable my skills are and Mashariki Management will cater to all talented individuals who fit the my client parameters. Through Mashariki, I will be seeking to develop my clients into self-sustaining & accomplished artists.
To create an environment where my clients can be creatively fulfilled and financially successful.
To create & execute development strategies with talented individuals.
